Fukushima Surrounded by Radioactive Dead Zone





The reality of Fukushima is simple.  Three reactors went through some form of partial meltdown and the containment vessels had at least one breach.  It really does not get any worse because the worst possible failure occurred when the cooling apparatus was destroyed by the tsunami.  It made a maximum event inevitable.

This means that a lot of radioactive material is now in the environment and we must wait for natural means to reduce the danger.  Turning over the soil for twenty five miles in all directions may be a good start.

In the meantime we must listen to damage control from official bodies.  Do not go near the at risk zone without a radiation monitor to know how much exposure you are getting.

It appears that the fate of Fukushima is to be encased in concrete.  I suspect that a lot of the radioactive material was flushed into the ocean in order to disperse them down to safe levels.  We may never get the whole truth out of this.

Land around Fukushima now radioactive dead zone; resembles target struck by atomic bomb

 (NaturalNews) It is nothing short of astonishing that the nuclear catastrophe we've all been told was "no big deal" has now escalated into the worst nuclear disaster in the history of human civilization. It's so bad now that soil samples taken from outside the 12-mile exclusion zone (the zone considered safe enough by the Japanese government for schoolchildren to attend school there) are higherthan the 1.48 million becquerels a square meter limit that triggered evacuations outside Chernobyl in 1986.


In other words, the radiation level of the soil 12 miles from Fukushima is now higher than the levels considered too dangerous to live in near Chernobyl. This is all coming out in a new research report authored by Tomio Kawata, a fellow at the Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan. That same report also reveals that radiation from Fukushima has spread over 230 square miles.


What we're facing here, folks, is a Fukushima dead zone where life will never return to its pre-Fukushima norms.

Radiation levels similar to nuclear bomb test site

Bloomberg is now reporting, "Tetsuya Terasawa said the radiation levels are in line with those found after a nuclear bomb test, which disperses plutonium. He declined to comment further." (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-...)


One soil sample taking 25 kilometers away from Fukushima showed Cesium-137 exceeding 5 million becquerels per square meter. This level, of course, makes it uninhabitable by humans, yet both the Japanese and U.S. governments continue to downplay the whole event, assuring their sheeple that there's nothing to worry about. By their logic, since all the people are sheeple anyway, as long as the area is safe enough for sheep, it's also safe enough for the human population.


Both Japan and the U.S. have made huge efforts to raise the limits of allowed radiation exposure in foods and beverages. This was, of course, a deceitful tactic to try to reclassify radiation contamination as somehow magically being "safe" by redefining it.


The outright lying and tactics of deception that have been used to try to downplay the severity of the radioactive fallout from Fukushima are nothing less than despicable. In a time when radiation threatens the safety and food supply of hundreds of millions of people, we are getting nothing but a Fukushima whitewash.


Fukushima is now far worse than Chernobyl ever was and yet we're all being told it's no problem and that the government has it all under control. I ask: How is 5 million becquerels per square meter not a problem? It's amazing that we even got this information, considering how frequently TEPCO claims its sensors and meters aren't working (basically any time they get a reading that's "too high").


The Japanese government can't wait to corral the sheeple back onto the radioactive soil, by the way. "Basically, the way in which the current zones have been drawn up aren't a concern in terms of the impact on health," said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano. "Using Mr. Kawata's report as a guide, we want to do what we can to improve the soil, so people can return as soon as possible." (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-...)rmation about world events.


Barely two weeks ago, TEPCO finally admitted Fukushima suffered multiple core meltdowns in the hours following the tsunami strike

(http://www.naturalnews.com/032378_n...) (http://www.naturalnews.com/032437_F...). This was the first time TEPCO openly admitted to something the alternative media had been reporting for months.


What has become perfectly clear in the reporting on Fukushima is that:


• Governments lie to the people
• Mainstream media lies to the people
• Only the alternative media was correct in reporting the severity of the core meltdowns
and the release of radioactive material into the environment.


That's why more and more people are turning away from traditional sources of (mis)information and instead relying on the alternative media to get accurate info

"What we're facing here, folks, is a Fukushima dead zone where life will never return to its pre-Fukushima norms." Never is a strong term to use at this point of the containment and investigation. As an example,there are plants and bacteria that have the ability to consume radiation yet the soil contamination depths have not been determined. There are solutions and proofs based in testing areas of nuclear bombing test areas over the past 60 years. Yes, the problems appear to be overwhelming especially since the truth has yet to be determined but I do remain hopeful that the Japanese will solve the problem if given time and the financial ability to remediate the site. If any country can achieve this, it would be the Japanese. I believe we should concentrate on assisting them limit further expansion of the contamination and allow them to begin the process of investigation and decontamination. They have suffered more damage via nuclear energy than any country on earth but were able to solve their past problems and there is no reason to doubt that they will not solve this one. To imply that there is no solution and that they will 'never' be able to recover is pointless at this stage and the world should assist them rather than armchair quarterback the abilities or impossibilities of the Japanese nation. Any material that is mined is taken and concentrated for use. Theoretically, any concentrated material could be deconcentrated and returned to its point of origin. Unless I am misinformed, man does not have the ability to create matter. There is a solution but it will take a world wide effort to solve a problem that affects all of us. What we need is the truth before we can begin a solution of the problem. No one knows the truth at this point not even the site operators or the government of Japan. At the very least they need help to determine the extent of the problem before actions taken could make future efforts of remediation impossible or impractible.
